Told You I'd Be Back...
Phew! I’m back - a bit worse for wear perhaps, but back none the less.
My first event was successful in most respects – however there was one small little matter at the very start which tainted the whole rest of the two weeks. I’m sure many of you have either read about it or seen footage about it seeing as it made International headlines - yes, I did indeed say International headlines and not for a good reason!!
While I’m not going to go into it, it did seriously shake my confidence somewhat. And although the matter was completely out of my control and very unforeseen it still has had a massive effect on me. But because it happened at the very start there really wasn’t any time to wallow in self pity (how ever much I may have wanted to) and its just one of those things where you need to pick yourself up, shake yourself off and keep moving.
And after beating up my body up for the last two weeks with no sleep and eating when I could (and not really all that well) it is now having its revenge. I am sick sick sick! All stuffy, sore throat and achy – as it turns out I worked about 4 weeks in the space of two weeks. And although I’d love a bit of time off I can’t because we are straight into auditions this week for a show in May, a film festival which we help publicise starts Thursday and there is a week full of health to finish organising.
I’ve missed you all so much but haven’t yet had time to catch up with your goings on – I find it quite strange how much I missed blogging and wearing pretty things, you have no idea how happy I felt to throw on a dress on Saturday (my first day off for a while). It was sunny and warm and I bought red lip stick just because I could!! The dress above is one I had had my eye on for a while from Witchery but was too far out of my price range, then all of a sudden, a few months later I picked it up second hand for a fraction of the cost – and it’s 100% silk!!
Even though I’m still super busy at work, hopefully I can return to normal somewhat with life, blogging and general things now, I have a pile of sewing and altering that badly needs attending!
